Mexico City is home Frida Kahlo’s Museum “Casa Azul”
Consider joining Dulce Vida Travel – All-Inclusive Tour to Mexico City in December
On July 6, 1907, Frida Kahlo was born in La Casa Azul in la Colonia de Coyoacán, located in one of Mexico City’s oldest and charming neighborhoods.
Once a village, but as Mexico City expanded, Coyoacán was absorbed into Mexico City. The name comes from the Aztec word, which means ” place of coyotes.”
La Casa Azul was made into a museum in 1958, four years after Frida’s death. Her creative universe is to be found in the Casa Azul, the place where she was born and where she died. Following her marriage to Diego Rivera, Frida lived in different places in Mexico City and abroad, but she always returned to her family home in Coyoacán. Today it is the most popular museum in the Mexican capital. The Museo Frida Kahlo preserves the personal objects that reveal the private universe of Mexico’s most celebrated woman artist.
